This fun Fortnite Birthday Cake & Cookies set is sure to wow the Fortnite fan in your life!
If you’re not familiar with the video game Fortnite… you’re likely a good bit over the age of 18 and/or don’t have young boys in your life!
Fortnite has quickly become one of the most popular and successful video games ever! Fortnite is described as an “open-world survival game, in which players collect resources, make tools and weapons, and try to stay alive as long as possible.” (source, NBCnews.com)
I do not take cake or cookie orders, but I do love making treats as gifts for close friends when I am able.
One of my very good friends has a sweet son (and four more sweet children) I adore. He’s just so dang cute!
His birthday request (to me) was a Fortnite Birthday Cake… so I did my best to deliver!
Although I have heard of the game Fortnite, no one in my house plays it… so this cake and cookies set required a bit of research on my part!
PIN IT NOW to save for later!
A bit of googling revealed some popular items associated with Fortnite, so I printed out a few graphics from the game and got to work.
The birthday boy had requested a “llama” be included on the cake… and my research revealed the llama he was referring to is the Fortnite Loot Llama. I couldn’t really tell you what it does, or what it’s for in the game… but I thought it was cute enough to try to re-create with frosting!
I think I set a new personal record with this loot llama cookie for the amount of time spent decorating a single cookie!
Because I was creating a design I’d never done before, and trying to make the cookie both adorable and instantly recognizable, this single cookie design took several hours to complete (due in part to drying time between numerous steps).
I am going to to give you all the details and tips I can for this cake and cookie set, but please know that this is NOT the set to start on if you are a beginner decorator.
It’s really only a set you should take on for a someone you REALLY love (or for a LOT of money)! =)
